Mega Slam 72 Installation
Check out the main steps required to install a Mega Slam 72 Hoop. Make sure you’re aware of every step involved when installing your system. Correct installation ensures a lifetime of fun. Follow the links to download detailed installation instructions for your model.
1. Plan & Prep
Pick the perfect spot for your hoop to live. The Mega Slam 72 has an overhang of 48″. Note: Hitting a below-ground utility service by accident is no fun. Be sure to check the ground for service routes before and during digging.
2. Dig & Pour
Dig a 1.25m deep hole and fill it with concrete to build the foundation for your in-ground hoop. It will take a lot of concrete, so be ready. Check your detailed instructions before you start digging.
3. Level Your Anchor
After 72 hours of drying concrete, it’s time to make sure to level the system. You want a level the system because it will play true. Watch our video on how to level the anchor.
4. Install Your System
If you’re planning on installing a Mega Slam Hoop yourself, you’d better call some back-up. The systems are heavy, like really very heavy and require at least 3 strong people to lift a large glass backboard. Each model is a little different, so reference your manual.
